Text by F. R. Warren
Hark, I hear the harps eternal,
Ringing on the farther shore.
As I near those swollen waters
With their deep and solemn roar.
And my soul, tho’ stain’d with sorrow,
Fading as the light of day,
Passes swiftly o’er those waters,
To the city far away.
Souls have cross’d before me, saintly,
To that land of perfect rest;
And I hear them singing faintly
In the mansions of the blest.
